Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Hi Amy

I'm in Italy and I have the same battery issue. Energy Manager says the battery is dead and needs to be replaced. I did the sensor calibration several times but it keeps filpping from 0 to 100% and the laptop turns off with no warning.
The laptop is still under warranty and I'm thinking about having it replaced.
Thanks for your help

Lucio

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Now the Z510 Battery is at 0% and does not charge at all. I uninstalled the Enargy Manager and installed it again with no use. I've uninstalled Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery and restared the laptop with no use also. Have tried the Guage reset with no use also. 

The current firmware is  0005-0051-0032-0005. Is there any way to force updating the firmware???

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Please advice on this issue. Will it be fixed via firmware update or do I need to get battery and voltage sensors replaced?

 

If no answer until end of the month, I will return my laptop as warranty will run out.

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Lenovo sent me a replacement battery which I installed myself. I strongly suggest you to return it before warranty expires

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Thanks for the advice. Does it work once battery is replaced? I was worried it has something to do with the voltage sensor.

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

I have exactly the same problem. It seems to be a firmware/software issue with LEM with calibration. LEM calibration is useless. If I leave my batterry charging for hours (overnight) it will finally go from 99% to 100% fully charged but like others it will discharge staying on 99% or 100% for ages then rapidly go down and without warning shutdown with no 14% or 7% indication.

 

On the other hand every customer here who has had their battery replaced has cured the problem! My laptop is 5 months old! There does seem to be a defect with this model and I too cannot afford to have my laptop away for 2-3 weeks.

 

We need Lenovo to guarantee a battery sent to us for CRU installlation, regardless of on-site warranty or not, as this clearly is a massive problem in this model. There are too many with the same defect not to be.

Re: Lenovo Z510 Battery Issues

Dear Amy,

 

I have exactly the same problem too. I own a Lenovo Z510 since March 2014. I had no problem, then a couple of days ago suddenly the battery indicator started giving the wrong battery status. I tried the following:

 

1. Battery gauge reset with Lenovo Energy Manager

2. Unistalling Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery

 

Nothing worked. It seems that some users solved the problem by installing a new battery. Do you sugggest to do that or is there any other way to solve this problem?

 

Thank you.
